The Perilous Life of Jade Yeo
The Perilous Life of Jade Yeo
Price: £2.22

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly charming, 14 Aug. 2016
Having enjoyed Zen Cho's other books, I liked the idea of finding out how she approached a more 'real world' story. Glad I did. Jade is incredibly likeable, so I was very much cheering her on as her perception of herself starts to align with reality. She's smart, curious, independent, decisive and remarkably clear sighted - except when it comes to one important thing...

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant retrospective, 5 Oct. 2014
I read my first Pratchett book about 30 years ago and haven't gone back to many of the print versions, though i've worn out audio tapes, then CDs and now MP3s. So this exploration of his female characters was more than just an interesting dissection of women in his stories, it was a reminder of how much he has grown as a writer (and I as a reader). It's inspired me to revisit his earlier novels again to take another look at the seeds of great works like The Truth. And, oh, how I've missed the Lancre witches!

5.0 out of 5 stars So useful for Barbados/Canada/US, 22 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for a recent trip. Have had bad experiences of travel adapters in the past - not always great quality. This four-way plug allowed us to keep phones, kindles, laptops, cameras etc charged while in Barbados, Canada and the US. No problems with faulty sockets or badly aligned plug pins. Absolutely delighted and would recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says - great little USB memory stick, 30 July 2010
Although memory was marginally smaller than I expected (dropped a few meg, though it's already sufficiently large) this was more than made up for by its convenience, portability and water resistance. I've been usin it for a couple of months now and it's been reliable and a decent speed.

4.0 out of 5 stars High concept - just hold on to those characters!, 23 Feb. 2010
Loved the previous three books and agree with other reviewers that Robson is really experimenting with stretching the genre (though, what genre is the originating one I'm having some trouble identifying - let's says 'stretching genres'). This is high concept SF/Fantasy and demands the reader's full attention throughout. That said, I always really liked some of the characters who, in this instalment, have travelled so far beyond their origins that many are barely recognisable. As they change, so do their motivations and priorities, so it's a bit of an effort maintaining the bond you have with them as a reader. Also, as the laws of physics/nature/magic become stretched, it becomes impossible to guess or anticipate how situations will develop - sometimes it feels like a parade of one 'deus ex machina' after another. I've no trouble with the internal logic of these changes, but it's definitely less enjoyable. Having said that, I'm delighted that Robson is pushing herself and her readers into new regions of the imagination, so will choose to see this as a price worth paying. I believe there's another book in the making right now, so hope she will take pity and reconnect us with her characters in new and interesting ways.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even my nan can use it!, 28 Jan. 2010
Bought this for my nan when she moved home. She is happy with the large buttons and display, and can take it out with her if needed. Perfect.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 28 Jan. 2010
Bought as a temporary case for my new ipod until I found the right permanent solution - did the job but, as a simple thick cloth pouch, can't beat a proper case for either protection or access.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enthralling, 7 Dec. 2009
This review is from: Wolf Hall (Hardcover)
Bought on a whim after someone named Mantel's Thomas Cromwell as the character from literature she was most entranced by. What I found was a book I was pulled into completely and not let go until the final word. Mantel says she intends to publish a follow up. Phew.
